Nectanebo II - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (259 words)
Nectanebo II (ruled 360 - 343 BC), also known by the name Nakhthoreb, was the third and last king of the Thirtieth dynasty of Egypt and the last native ruler of the country.
Nectanebo was placed on the Egyptian throne by Spartan king Agesilaus II, who helped him overthrow Teos and fight off a rival pretender.
With Nectanebo's flight all organized resistance to the Persians collapsed, and Egypt once again was reduced to a satrapy of the Persian Empire.
Thirtieth dynasty of Egypt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (377 words)
Nectanebo was in control of all of Egypt by November of 380 BC, and spent much of his reign defending his kingdom from Persian reconquest with the occasional help of Sparta or Athens.
Nectanebo II's reign was dominated by the efforts of the Persian rulers to reconquer Egypt, which they considered a satrapy in revolt.
This second invasion proved successful, and Nectanebo was forced to withdraw from his defenses in the Nile Delta to Memphis, where he saw that his cause was lost.
